Fall Family Fun Around Stark County

Fall Family Fun - Stark and Summit Counties - DeHOFF REALTORS

Fall brings cooler temperatures with a crisp feel to the air, and with the hustle and bustle of school starting back, it's the perfect time to have some family fun on the weekends. Several farms and orchards around Stark county offer loads of activities for the whole family, making them a great place to visit for the day or afternoon.

Our real estate agents recommend checking out the following popular destinations for fall family fun in the area.

  1. Maize Valley - 6193 Edison St. NE, Hartville, OH 44632
    Maize Valley
    is a popular destination for Ohio families seeking fall fun since it offers so much to do. In addition to navigating through an 8-acre corn maze, your family can play trivia with questions hidden throughout the maze. The younger kids can also take an animal train ride, and you can gather the whole family for an old-fashioned wagon ride. Other fun activities include pumpkin cannon demonstrations, a pumpkin jump pad, goat-a-palooza animal area, straw bale mountain, push carts, pedal trikes, Farmagination village, and more. And for a few extra dollars, you can try your luck at finding a sparkling treasure at the gem mine. Maize Valley is just around the corner from Hartville homes for sale.

  2. Kingsway Pumpkin Farm - 1555 Andrews St. NE, Hartville, OH 44632
    If you're looking for a day or afternoon of family-friendly fall fun, head to Kingsway Pumpkin Farm. A general admission ticket gives you access to activities, including the 8-acre corn maze with a butterfly design. You'll also be able to meet farm animals, play in a corn box and straw tunnel, and more. If you're looking for pumpkins to add to your fall decor, take a wagon ride to the patch and pick your pumpkins, which are sold by weight. Make sure to bring your phone or camera along to take photos since you'll find plenty of displays and photo props hand-painted by the owner to create great backdrops.

  3. Nickajack Farms - 2955 Manchester Ave. NW, North Lawrence, OH 44666
    Nickajack Farms
    has been holding its Pumpkin Days festival for nearly 20 years, adding more activities and games each year. In addition to a corn maze, other activities include taking wagon rides, interacting with barnyard animals, zooming down a 30-foot slide, shooting paintballs at targets, blasting corn from cannons, bowling with pumpkins, and digging in a corn crib filled with 10,000 pounds of corn. You can also take a wagon ride to the pick-your-own pumpkin patch or choose some gourds and squash. Grab some bundled Indian corn and corn stalks to complete your fall look.

  4. Arrowhead Orchard - 11724 Lisbon St. SE, Paris, OH 44669
    Established in 1932, Arrowhead Orchard has grown from a hand-planted orchard to include plenty of fall activities along with crops. Take the kids to tackle the corn maze or take a walk through beautiful sunflowers. You'll all enjoy unlimited hayrides, which could make for a welcome respite after more active pursuits like slides, a zip line, hay mountain, an apple cannon, an obstacle course, tree climb, and more. You can also pick your own pumpkin or cut your own beautiful sunflower bouquet to take home.
